April 9, 2021 — Developer Milestone and iconic toy company Mattel have dropped a pre-alpha gameplay video of Hot Wheels Unleashed™, a fast-paced arcade racing game with gorgeous graphics that seemingly uses speedy camera angles not unlike the cult-racer WipeOut.
I have to admit Hot Wheels Unleashed looks incredibly promising, and the pre-release video below makes the game look like a real thrill ride. The alpha footage shows off six of its cars, and the final game will have a whopping 60+ plus vehicles when it releases later this year. The cars revealed so far are named ‘Rodger Dodger’, ‘Twin Mill’, ‘Rip Rod’, ‘Night Shifter’, ‘Dragon Blaster’, and ‘ Sharkruiser’.
Players will be able to customize vehicle skins, and there are also tons of interactive items laid out on the race tracks. Intriguingly, the game features a Track Editor that provides gamers with a powerful tool for customizing — and perhaps also building — their own tracks (and share them for others to play and provide feedback.)
Hot Wheels Unleashed™ releases on September 30, 2021, for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
